NBIC & VIB Bioinformatics RPM Repository

From BioAssist
Jump to: navigation, search


NBIC and BITS (Bioinformatics facility of the VIB, http://www.bits.vib.be) are maintaining both Galaxy servers focusing on NGS data analysis. To ease administration on their servers, they will establish a Bioinformatics RPM Repository on bioinformatics tools, the primary focus being NGS tools. The purpose is to come to a stable repository of easily installable packages for the common bioinformatics tools that can be used in (for example) Galaxy.

Be welcome to join our effort, which is just starting. Interested, please email hailiang dot mei at nbic dot nl or bits at vib.be.
